Dear Parents, 

 

Thanks for your questions regarding

We currently have the following in place:

  • Study Hall: Daily (except Wednesday) opportunity for your student to complete homework in a quiet library setting.
  • Summit Academic Time: Daily (except Wednesday) opportunity to work briefly with a teacher, an older student tutor or a fellow student to get help with homework, etc. 
  • Testing/RetakesIndividual students will have the opportunity to take or retake assessments during their Summit period on Thursdays.  Students can take assessments everyday before or after school without signing up.  
  • CohortsOn Tuesdays during the last 50 minutes, students will work with their Cohort on a topics such as Character, College Preparation, GPA maintenance,..... Students will rotate between 3topics of choice and 2assigned topics in 4 week sessions.
    • Communication Pathways:You should be seeing a Communication Pathways email from your student each Friday which is a template that your student will use to give you general information on what is happening at school and how you can help.
    • Morning Meetings:  Twice weekly (Monday and Wednesday during Pride) focused meeting with classmates and teacher to cultivate social and emotional growth through a greeting, sharing, and message. 

Keep in mind:

  • Your student has access to a computer or a Chromebook throughout Summit.
  • Academic Support and Summit Time duration varies depending on the schedule for the day as some classes are block on Tuesday/Wednesday (90 minutes) and some are single Monday, Thursday, and Friday (55 minutes).
  • Students can sign up for time with a teacher during Summit Time, but realize our time is for all of our students. We are happy to schedule other time or refer your student to a tutor for questions that require more than a few minutes. 
  • Teachers will use Summit Time to pull groups of students to complete focused study sessions for test retake or extra support. 
  • Other priorities arise such as Principal Talks, Assemblies, Awards Presentations, etc that may disrupt the normal Summit schedule. We will do our best to give students notice so they can adjust their homework priorities.

Please refer to the attached document that further explains our programs in Junior HighSummit and how you and your student can utilize these tools to be successful.  

 

Thanks for supporting your student and their learning!
